A teenage boy described how he felt “disgusted” after being encouraged to have sex with a girl on the back seat of a teacher’s car.

A jury saw footage of a police interview as the 17-year-old explained to an officer how he felt he was unable to “defy” the requests of William Drury.

Drury, 48, of Chester Road, Halifax, is on trial where he denies two charges of causing a child to engage in sexual activity by a person in a position of trust; five charges of sexual activity with a child by a person in a position of trust; one charge of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and six charges of making an indecent photograph of a child.

Prosecutors claim the incident between the boy and girl happened as Drury drove the teenagers home after a meal at his house. During the interview the boy described how Drury stopped his car at Otley Chevin and encouraged them to have sex.

Asked by the officer how he felt after the incident, he replied: “Absolutely horrible. Just so disgusted.”

He added: “I was probably a little bit excited by it to an extent. But I did not want to do it. I remember quite clearly that I did not want to do it.

“After the initial rush there was a long kind of moment where we were still and I had a sense that she was feeling exactly the same as me.”

Asked why he did it, he replied: “There was something perhaps in his face, perhaps in the way that he was that there was no way I could defy him.”

The boy was asked what Drury was doing while the car was parked.

He said: “He said very little. I think he got a phone call from his wife saying, ‘Where are you, When are you coming back.’

“He was very silent as he was dropping us off.”

He also said Drury once asked him to get video footage of him having sex with the girl.

The court has heard Drury encouraged the pair to get together before quizzing them about their sex life together. It is claimed Drury told the girl he loved her on a number of occasions. The girl told the jury Drury had manipulated her and said she was “under his spell.”
